Inspiring ideas

‘Jack Yan’s combination of brand theories and creative thoughts, specially within the field of cultural differences and consumer insights, gave me lots of inspiration and new ideas. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to develop strong brand personalities that connect to … consumers’ minds and hearts.’
